Vehicle Overview
Honda MSX125 (Grom) is a monkey bike that resembles a street bike in terms of design but feels even smaller than the Honda Navi from India. It uses premium components like USD front forks, high mounted motorcycle exhaust and rear disc brake. The tyres are even thicker than an average Indian sport bike. It comes with a 124.9cc, air cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 9.7 BHP at 7000 rpm and 10.9 Nm at 5500 rpm. The best part is its 4-speed manual gearbox, making it sport effective when compared the Indian Honda Navi. It weighs just 101.7 kg with a full fuel tank of 5.5 liters. Honda MSX125 was recently spotted testing in India in Shimla (Himachal Pradesh), and it might launch here within next 2-3 months.Kawasaki Z125 is a monkey bike that comes with an automatic gearbox for ease in driving. The 125cc machine is fuel injected and claims a maximum power of 9.4 BHP. Z125 is a premium product with 200 mm front disc and 184 mm rear disc for braking duties. It uses front USD forks and a mono-shock for the rear suspension. Kawasaki offers a 7.4 liter fuel tank while its overall weight is just 101 kg. It rivals Honda MSX125 internationally and may include Honda Navi as its Indian rival. It is offered in Candy Lime Green, Metallic Graphite Grey and Candy Burnt Orange shade.NA
